What a strange day. The market action looked ugly, yet my portfolio barely moved throughout the day. In fact I have quite a few positions that ended the day with pretty good gains: MMP +7.6%, EPD +5.2%, APD +4.35%, and plenty of other positions in the +2-3% range. Bonds did well too. Net worth is still sitting where it was 6 months ago, and well above the January number. No need to cut out the foie gras just yet.

Within our retirement company's choices of where to allocate our money is a general interest savings account that is grandfathered in to pay a minimum of 3%. I moved some of our money out of the more risky funds and put more in the 3% account last week. But I'm not going to change my retirement plans for next year, not after today. (More stress and issues I'm tired of dealing with.)
